Charter School of Educational Excellence, Yonkers, New York
 
About Us - Mission Statement

The mission of the Charter School of Educational Excellence (“CSEE”) is to produce students who meet or exceed all New York State learning standards.  CSEE will do this by creating a challenging learning environment with high expectations for every child with an emphasis on the basic subject areas of English-language arts, mathematics, social studies, and science.  The school will employ standards based and research proven curriculum, implement best educational practices, use a variety of assessments to measure on-going student progress in skills and content learning, and support teachers with professional development activities that are aligned to the instructional program.  CSEE’s emphasis on basic subjects will give students a strong academic foundation that will allow them to become critical thinkers and life-long learners.  The school will also expose students to a diverse curriculum that promotes appreciation of art, music, and cultural awareness.  The Charter School of Educational Excellence will provide a safe and nurturing environment for all students and foster a strong partnership with families and the community.

Philosophy

The fundamental belief at the Charter School of Educational Excellence is that ALL CHILDREN CAN LEARN.  All children have the right to attend schools in which they can progress and learn.  They shall have a real opportunity to learn equally rigorous content.  We hold our school accountable to the same standards as those of the highest performing schools in our state.

The Charter School of Educational Excellence encourages teachers to engage in “Performance-based” instruction, so that our students learn both the basics and the higher-level skills they will need after graduation.  Performance-based classes are more difficult to design and teach than the lecture approach, but they help children learn better and become excited about learning.  Children learn by doing.  Students are required to prove, through their projects and presentations, that they have mastered knowledge and skills in language arts, social studies, mathematics, and science.
